Born and raised on a dairy farm in Northeast VT and this was a staple for breakfast after chores. I now just pour maple syrup on Wheaties.

Buc Wheats was discontinued because General Mills changed from Maple coating to coating them with Honey and people didn't like them without the Maple.So, due to low sales, they discontinued them. It had NOTHING to do with Racism.

I loved Buckwheats as a kid and my wife bought them for me after we got married. I still mourn the loss of Buckwheats. If General Mills quit making them over racism, I protest. Buckwheats were the best cereal ever. They were hardy and tasty.

I just read a web page stating that Buc Wheats was discontinued in 1984, which is not true. I was living in Daly City CA in 1987-88, and was able to purchase this cereal locally. Best cereal I've ever tasted. Very disappointed when I could no longer purchase. Still am.

They removed this cereal because stupid people thought it was racist, not understanding that buckwheat grain was the main ingredient.

Buc Wheats was my favorite cereal when I was a kid. The closest I've found to the smell and taste is Maple Cheerios. Not the same as a flake cereal but not bad at all.

Buc Wheats was my favorite cereal as a child. I loved the gigantic flakes you would get in the box. Still lament its demise. I remember the change to honey, the flakes were smaller too, didn't have the same taste so I quit having Mom buy it. Now 37 years later I still find myself searching for a Buc Wheat type cereal that was just as good as remember. Low and behold in 2018 I did!! Aldi's grocery store Millville brand has a cereal called Maple Nut Crunch and it is/was terrific!! After trying it I bought 6 boxes. Now the stores closest to me don't carry it anymore or have it only as an occasional special. The search continues... If you can find it try it!!!

I bought a dusty box of Buc Wheats on December 1st 1985. I remember the date because it was the first day of our honeymoon when I saw the box in a convenience store and had to get them because it was one of my favorite cereals and I hadn't seen it for a few years.

One of my all-time favorites. Many years later, I still get cravings for this cereal. I never understood why it was discontinued though someone said later that GM started putting honey on it instead of maple syrup. I don't recall that and maybe it was when my dad quit buying it. I've actually thought of buying Wheaties and putting maple syrup on them, mixing it all up, and putting it in the oven to bake it on.

Only tried Buc Wheats once as a kid in the '70's. I remember liking it. Cereal manufacturers don't care what we think and probably won't resurrect Buc Wheats... so all we have are our memories. Otherwise, drizzle pure maple syrup over a bowl of Wheaties, then add your milk for a breakfast trip down memory lane.

Arrowhead Mills makes a decent version for us grown ups who remember Buc Wheats. It's not as sweet as the old one (hence I say for grown ups), is made from buckwheat, i.e., no wheat filler, and has the slightly shiny maple glaze. Of course, being all buckwheat it is advertised as that magical "gluten-free" panacea, if you want to believe the marketing hype around that.

I eat breakfast cereal a few times a month. I miss Buc Wheats. If I could get the original ones, I'd eat cereal a lot more - like four times a week. I work in retail. When I mention missing these to my customers old enough to remember them, they agree that they were great and they'd buy them, too. The comment that pointed out market trends toward 'alternate' grains and more natural flavors would bode well for bringing this back is right on track!

I still remember Buc Wheats 45 years later. I really liked that cereal. Maple flavored anything is great. I read that the grain buckwheat has an amino acid complex making it superior to even oats. That should interest the company that holds the production rights to Buc Wheats. Bring them back... with maple flavor... I'll buy them:)

I think about this great cereal all the time which is what brought me here today as I was wondering when they quit making it. If making it with maple glaze was too expensive in the day, it should fit right in today because there are a lot of high end expensive grains and granolas on the shells. Bring it back or sell the rights please.

I'd happily love on the original Buc Wheats to the exclusion of all other foods. It was cancelled after they changed from maple to sugar. (Sugar became dirt cheap, which was the ruination of many awesome cereals.) Whoever said "it was basically corn flakes" couldn't be more wrong. It was a combination of wheat and buckwheat. (Buckwheat itself isn't a cereal grain. It's not a grass at all. The berries vaguely resemble fat little cereal grains.) It was flavored with a maple glaze. Wonderful, back in the day. I can still taste it now.

The three highest vitamin dense cereals that I ever found were Total, Product 19 and Buc Wheats. According to the boxes Total and Product 19 both had 100% of most of the vitamins while Buc Wheats had 45% of the "minimum daily adult requirement" for most of the vitamins. However I thought the flavor of Buc Wheasts was superior to the others and as others have commented I sure wish it was available again.

In the early 1980's, my spouse & I really liked the original Buc Wheats cereal. We were really disappointed when it was discontinued. I had called General Mills in the 80's and 90's - telling them they should bring back Buc Wheats in its original recipe. The last time I called was 2001 and the General Mills customer service rep questioned if it wasn't another cereal company that made Buc Wheats. I told the rep to look it up on the web. How sad GM discontinued a really great cereal then they don't even know they made it in the first place.

This was one great cereal. Only one I liked more than the sugar bomb cereals. Getting a clump of Buc Wheats on your spoon meant that maple goodness was about to explode. I would hunt for those clumps in the box, and if you shook the box just right you could get them to the surface and in your bowl. Never told my brother about that trick :-)

I loved Buc-Wheats as a kid. Team Flakes were another favorite. Both discontinued in the 80's, while so many other lame cereals remain. In the meantime, I've found a reasonable surrogate for Buc-Wheats: take some Wheaties and pour a little maple syrup over them and then add milk as usual.

I live in California now but was just trying to make my mom remember 35 years ago in Pennsylvania when she used to buy Buc Wheats cereal for us and she didn't recall so I got on the computer and found this site. I too feel the same about this cereal and am asking Santa to please bring the greatest tasting cereal I've ever eaten back to our grocery store shelves. There has never been another like it and for some reason all the greatest products get removed from the stores while the not so great stuff stays. I will believe in miracles if this great cereal returns. Please and thank you. I have faith you'll do the right thing, oh cereal makers.

Buc-Wheats was the best cereal ever produced. The taste of maple, the texture of the flakes, and the nutritional value. I remember them as clearly today as when I ate them growing up in the 70s. When the formula was changed to honey, I stopped eating them though. If they brought back the original Buc-Wheats, I would buy it regularly (as in every week).

Memory is a strange thing. While I remember the smell, texture and most of all flavor of this cereal so vividly - even though it's been 30+ years since I had it as a child - my memory of the name of the cereal was foggy all these years. I'm glad that an extensive Google search finally lead me here to this site to discover not only the actual name of it, but that I was not alone in my love of this awesome cereal. I still think about this cereal often, and as I pass through the cereal aisles in the grocery store I feel that so many of the selections on the shelf just don't hold a candle to Buc Wheats. I really, really wish this cereal would come back. I would buy it in a heartbeat!

Great cereal. Loved when the flakes stuck together when too much maple coating was on it. I remember the deer picture they had on the back once; I think it had a log cabin behind the deer, with maybe four prints you could buy? And I remember they gave away (sold?) the Farmer's Almanac as a promotion for the cereal. It was 1977, and I still have a copy. It has the "Pass the Buc" advertisement on the back. And I remember once I accidentally put tomato juice on my Buc Wheats because my mom put tomato juice in the same pitcher that she usually put the reconstituted powdered milk in... It tasted awful, but as a dutiful daughter who didn't want to waste GREAT BUC WHEATS, I tried to eat it anyway. Maple and tomato don't mix... Don't ever try Buc Wheats that way!

I was thinking of this cereal the other day, and actually looked for it in the stores. Of course I did not find it. It was one of the best testing cereals out their, Of course I liked Cap'n Crunch too, but Cap'n Crunch does not taste like it used too. I wish they would bring back Buc Wheats Cereal. I am 49 now and I loved the cereal. It brings back good memories growing up in a simpler time... at least for me. Hard work for my Mom and Dad (God rest his soul). Better go now - getting choked up.

I'm 44 years old and still, to this day, think Buc Wheats is The BEST cereal I've EVER tasted! It had wonderful flavor, and was a staple in our home. I have found myself, at times, asking friends if they remember having the cereal in their youth. Some remember, some don't. My husband doesn't. I, too, eat Wheaties, because it's the closest I can come to Buc Wheats. It's so exciting to actually find others who (like myself) cherish this old, days gone by, breakfast cereal. How I long to walk down my cereal aisle some day, only to be surprised to see Buc Wheats return!

There was Buc Wheat cookie recipe that my mom made that was on the box all the time. Does anybody remember how to make them? It was the flakes of cereal, some kinda binding agent and then Chocolate Chips with it. They were the bomb. I can't remember what the binding agent was... it was a white mixture and held the cookies together in little balls. Anyway hope and pray they big it back. Anyone with the cookie recipe please let me know. john_murzin@hotmail.com

When I get a craving for good old Buc Wheats, I put maple syrup on some Wheaties. It's not perfect, but it's close enough. You have to use good, real, $9/bottle Vermont maple syrup. Not that crud some people put on pancakes.

This was one of the best cereals ever. It was hard to find in grocery stores; there would be one row on the top shelf, harder to see, and not many stocked behind it; so if a few sold , it would be an empty shelf and nobody knew until the shelf was restocked, that there was Buckwheats there. It was never a highly marketed cereal. All the highly advertised cereals got the shelf space, so even though it was a great tasting cereal with a lot of people craving it, it probably didn't sell enough because of marketing and retailing (placement and stocking of product). I hope they consider these marketing gaffs, how so many people loved this cereal, and bring this cereal back.

For those who are craving that maple flavor, look at Arrowhead Mill's version of Maple Buckwheats.

Found some of the Arrowhead (which btw was the only buck wheat flakes I could find) at a Organic Grocers, so I bought a couple of boxes.

Maple-flavored cereal boosts nutrition-Buc Wheats- a high nutrition, ready to eat cereal- is being distributed by General mills.

Chicago Tribune Sep 17, 1971 Advertisement:
New Buc Wheats from General Mills is a high-nutrition cereal. Its flakes are a blend of wheat and buckwheat with a touch of maple flavor.

Buc Wheats -- truly one of the best cereals (with maple flavoring) there was. Even as a kid I loved it. There was a recipe on the box that we made all the time. It called for the cereal, peanut butter, and corn syrup as I recall. Gently warm the peanut butter and corn syrup on the stove. Mix together quickly and with a buttered spatula, you'd put it into a buttered pan and pat down. Let set for a while, cut into squares, and enjoy. I will always remember that recipe and wish that Buc Wheats cereal still existed. Memories ....

Yet Buckwheats and Fortified Oat Flakes (ranking 19 and 47) have 18 and 14 comments respectively, far more that any other cereal. Wonder why? Fans of these cereals seem to be extremely passionate about them. NOTE: Just like Post Oat Flakes, Buckwheats underwent a recipe change,
(which lead to its demise).

As most have said before me. This is the cereal I loved the best as a kid. Its flavor was nothing I have ever tasted before. I wish it would come again. I also miss Kaboom and Quisp!!

BucWheats was my favorite cereal when I was a kid! It was my mom's favorite too. It was definitely the best cereal ever created! I'm going to send General Mills an email.

I remember as a kid very much enjoying Buc Wheats and we had them all the time. I very much enjoyed them and wish anything nowadays came even close, but no such luck.

I remember Buc Wheats clearly. They were similar to the new Fosted Flakes Gold (with honey glaze) but Buc Wheats were better b/c they had that maple flavor taste. Make no mistake there was nothing healthy about them though they were very sweet.

I worked on BucWheats and the cereal was made from Wheat and buckwheat flour. The maple syrup was replaced with honey and maple extract during later years. The product also had a protein concentrate added to allow the claim that a serving had as much nutrition as a Bacon and Egg breakfast.

I'm sure it's been 23-24 years since I had them last, but OMG I crave them all the time. Such is the lifespan of a cereal though. It's around long enough to build a solid fan base, then BAM! It's gone.

Maybe if enough people e-mail General Mills, Buc Wheats might appear on the shelves again. It had to be more nutritional and better tasting than some of the junky cereals on the market now.

Oh, my god...this was my favorite cereal ever. Every time I gop to the grocery store I still scan the cereal aisle to see if it's made a miraculous comeback. So sad...

Buc Wheats were the best. Wish I had a box now.

I loved this cereal more than just about anything as a kid! I would eat it straight out of the box. All those clumps of flakes stuck together in mapley goodness. Amazing!! I wish, oh, how I wish you could still buy them -- it would be the only cereal I'd eat. A perfect combination of healthy and sugar-fix-ey.

I once e-mailed General Mills about Buc Wheats. They stated they stopped making them because they weren't a good enough seller. The best ever!
